…abstract fury

“I was, that winter, prey to abstract fury. I will not say which ones, but I did not tell them about it. But it must be said that they were abstract, not heroic, not alive; furore, in some way, for the lost human kind ... This was the terrible: the stillness in the not hope ... To believe the lost human kind and not to have fever to do something to the contrary, desire to lose me, for example, with him ... I was agitated from abstract fury, not in the blood, and I was quiet, I did not want anything ... but I stirred within myself for abstract fury”.

The opening line of Elio Vittorini gave birth of totally freedom dance. A journey into the memory of a young Charon and from the ferocity not yet reached, destined to a helm of Hades. An intimate look, that of this pièce, out of time and active life, in a confidential moment mixed with awareness, resignation, symbolism and inner emptiness. A dance of death, waiting for souls to fulfill one's duties reveals to us, those abstract fury of solitary wandering and the attempt of an inner awakening in the face of malaise and the sense of inertia and powerlessness towards the sufferings of mankind.
